Chapter Summary

The present edition is non-eclectic, and manuscripts SP IOS B222 and SP IOS B221 serve as the basic text to which all the other manuscripts listed above are compared. The reasons behind the choice of manuscripts SP IOS B222 and its continuation in SP IOS B221 as the basic texts for the present chapter are their various inherent characteristics, such as: 1. age; 2. length; 3. general condition; 4. continuity; and 5. completeness. The first apparatus comprises semantic variants, including variant readings from different Mss., as well as alternative readings of the basic Ms. where the text is unclear. The second apparatus comprises non-semantic variants, including purely orthographic variants of the same words, expressions, and proper names, explanations of abbreviations appearing in the basic text, abbreviations appearing in other Mss. though written in full in the basic Ms., as well as alternative abbreviations from other manuscripts.
